Virtual tour of our casting process

Raw material
We use round ingots/blooms of 25+ different steel grades
Sawing
Ingots are cut into required length and weight with a fully automatic circular saw
Billet heating
Each cut billet is heated and soaked to required temperature in the rotary hearth furnace
Blanking
Upsetting, indenting and piercing the heated billet
Ring rolling
Axial and radial reduction on the blank to adjust thickness, height and diameter
Expanding
Reduces distortions to minimum level
Heat treatment
Annealing/normalizing/hardening & tempering on the rolled rings

Machining for casting

Drilling
To make number of holes on the Pitch circle diameters with two live spindles simultaneously.
Turning
To achieve the required finish shape with two spindles.
Final inspection
NDT, Dimensional Measurement to meet customer's requirements & RPC for corrosion protection

Rust prevention

  • Protective coating is applied on the machined components to avoid corrosion during transportation and storage.
  • Tower flanges 100% area including holes are coated by spray painting with Weldable Epoxy Zinc primer. This is readily weldable and doesn’t have any detrimental effect on welding quality hence there is no need to remove before welding.
  • Tower flanges normally bearing rings are coated with Mineral based oils. After coating, rings are wrapped with VCI films to ensure longer shelf life.

Export worthy packaging

  • Tower flanges: Tower flanges are stacked keeping wooden spacers in between to avoid metal-to-metal contact. Metallic studs with rubber tubes on top are passed though the holes and clamped to prevent relative movement between flanges

  • Bearing rings: After applying anti-corrosive oil, bearing rings are wrapped with VCI films followed by stretch film. Edge protectors safeguard the bearing edges/corners from damage. Rings are stacked and clamped with wooden runners
